SubjectSwapping in recent kernels
Dear all,

Previously running 1.2.13, I recently tried 1.3.72 and 1.3.80. I have
8Mb of main memory and 10Mb of swap (the system is not heavily
loaded). The swapping behaviour in these kernels is noticeably
different from that of 1.2.13. From `free', the buffer size is almost
always >=2Mb and that there are many warnings `can't get a page' from
/var/log/messages.
Is the new swapping supposed to be more efficient? Do I simply need
more swap space?

Please reply by email. Thanks.

Billy
